Hike Summary

Eagles Nest walking track takes you on a journey though World Heritage rainforest and snow gum forest, with outstanding views along the way.
Climb down into the ageless world of Gondwana rainforest. Marvel at the huge mossy Antarctic beech trees covered in fungus and dotted with beech orchids. You'll see water trickling from the rocks, often freezing and forming chandeliers of ice that glisten in the winter light.
Climb back up to the escarpment near Banksia Point and return to Point lookout through the snow gum woodland. Look out for the brilliantly coloured crimson rosellas as you wander through the forest. In spring, you'll be treated to the beauty of snow gum woodland carpeted with snowgrass tussocks and colourful wildflowers.
Finish with the breathtaking views from Point lookout, knowing what incredible natural wonders lie in the wilderness below.
